EOC's Nonprofit Partnership a Winner for Coloradans

Energy Outreach Colorado, Mile High Youth Corps Energize Affordable Housing

To help the largest possible number of Colorado low-income families and seniors benefit from lower energy bills, Energy Outreach Colorado partners with other nonprofit organizations to efficiently deliver its affordable energy programs across the state.

One of these valuable partners is Mile High Youth Corps (MHYC), which provides paid job training and hands-on work experience to Colorado youth ages 16 to 24.

When EOC is installing equipment to lower energy costs in an affordable housing community, for example, these Corpsmembers go into each apartment and replace old lightbulbs with high efficiency ones and install low-flow faucet aerators and showerheads. 

3-23 MHYC“MHYC has been an excellent partner for us for more than 10 years because they can provide us the number of skilled, enthusiastic Corpsmembers we need when we need them, at many of the locations where we have projects, at a very affordable cost,” said Luke Ilderton, director of energy efficiency programs at Energy Outreach Colorado.

“As a fellow nonprofit, we feel great about supporting MHYC’s mission of helping youth make a difference in themselves and their community through meaningful service opportunities and educational experiences,” he added.

Recently, MHYC installed energy saving measures in the 79 units at Green Ridge Meadows Apartments in Evergreen owned by Jefferson County Housing Authority. A portion of the project is being funded through the Colorado Energy Office, along with five other multi-family affordable housing projects that EOC is managing this year in Alamosa, Colorado Springs, Denver and Loveland.
